50th anniversary of the Moon landing: lunar globes of our companion in space

June 11 2019, Betty Lux

Since time immemorial the human race and human imagination have been fascinated by the Moon. Through a telescope or astronomical binoculars it seems so close and yet still it sometimes seems so far away. However scientific knowledge about the Earth’s satellite has multiplied in recent years.

The publishing house Columbus Verlag, one of the very first manufacturers of lunar globes, has created a completely new and revised lunar globe – exclusively for us! Because the relief map is intricately applied by hand, the result is a significantly higher resolution and brilliant image. This lunar globe represents high quality workmanship, made in Germany.

Broaden Your Horizons with Augmented Reality Globes

December 17 2018, Betty Lux

Columbus, one of the leading globe manufacturers, has a tradition-rich history to show for itself.  Since the 1950s, the Duo-Series has long been produced in southern Germany by hand. Yet, hand-made and tradition do not exclude innovative ideas.  Columbus remains true to that concept, even today: the new 4D Globe App for iPhone and iPad gives your Duo-Globe a completely new dimension!

As a result of technological advances, the app can display additional information on top of the globe, such as weather data or geographic details.  A completely new animation of the Earth’s inner makeup create an awe-inspiring experience.  All Duo-Globes, even older models, have the makings of augmented reality and only with a few taps of a smartphone.  Check out our selection of Duo-Globes here. . The app is free to download in the Apple Appstore.

Other globe-makers have also jumped on the Augmented Reality bandwagon. Oregon Scientific has a series of new (childrens’) globes on the market, which take young adventurers on at trip around the world!  Special 3D effects with animals dinosaurs and special landscapes creates an exciting tour of discovery at every turn and for the whole family. The addition of a massive amount of interesting facts about continents, countries and cultures make the globes an excellent educational tool!

Augmented Reality paired with precise 3D printing technology: the US-based company, AstroReality has combined the two, to create incredibly, detail-rich and unique relief globes.  The app allows you to explore the Martian surface, for example, with a plethora of details.  Check out for yourself what you can discover on Mars – no personal interplanetary spaceship necessary.
